2013, Stony Hill ChardonnayUdsolgt
Our 2013 Chardonnay crop didn’t equal the big 2012 vintage in size, but the quality of the grapes thrilled us.
As always, the wine is pale straw in color and offers a big bouquet of green apples and a graceful hint of citrus.
On the palate we detect the same fruit flavors of citrus and green apple with the added touch of earthiness, a chalky minerality from our stony soils, which we call a wet stone quality.
We also like the mouthfeel, a combination of crisp acidity which gives it bounce and a slightly forward richness for balance.
We think you’ll like this wine, and all the evidence points to a long life ahead.
